We are so very, very saddened to hear of your father’s passing! He is one of those rare…special individuals who possessed the capability to make one feel that the ‘world is right’! People like Frank helps one maintain the belief that ‘people are, indeed, good’. Each and every time we had the opportunity to meet or speak with him, his gracious, genuine personality shone. What a terrific individual. His passing is everyone’s loss! Warmest Regards …Ken, Wendy and Joanna Yaremkevich.
